Sunday Evening Links

Anti-Racist Parent has a rather heartrending essay about transracial adoptions and how kids cope with feeling different.

The L.P.G.A. has reversed its policy of making golfers prove they are fluent in English before they can tee-up. My, how generous! [/snark]

I'm sure you've heard by now, but Rick Santorum thinks we're not doing feminism right! Mr. Santorum, with all due disrespect, you're not doing logic right.

Zuska discusses how conversations about oogling so quickly get degraded and derailed by stupid pseudo-psychological / pseudo-evolutionary arguments that basically boil down to "Menz can't look away from boobies, teh science makes them too mesmerizing!"

Renee takes on what it really means to 'dress the part' as a feminist.

Why does Sarah Palin hate polar bears and love oil?

Slowly but surely, women are attaining equality in what has traditionally been a male-dominated field - urology.

Sarah Palin's church "... is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer." Ugh.

Kris-Stella's post about the little details that make one feel foreign after moving to a new country really resonated with me, as I'm sure it will with many of our readers.

I know I've missed tons of interesting articles this week, so leave a link in the comments. Don't be too shy to self-promote.

Monday UPDATE: Also, here's some Tina Fey- because Mondays should be funny (thanks, Kelli, for emailing us the link):

That video was just successful in making me sad. I miss my Hil.

I know you do! HRC really is great, and I'm glad we have her. I thought it was funny to read that Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman on the '70s TV series, declared that that Clinton was far more worthy of the superhero title than Palin (here):

Hillary Clinton is a lot more like Wonder Woman than Mrs. Palin. She did it all, didn't she?
